Evelyn @ Project Stash is perpetually posting knitting ideas and this seemed like such a good idea. A mindless knit of 170 sts in garter stitch. Use up the stash, make some stripes and lots of happy.
After finishing one sleeve on the Tea Leaves cardigan (@10pm!!) I got ants in my pants and joined Evelyn in casting on for the Wonder Blanket.
Cast on 166 with some lovely heathered green. I was just shy of 170 and a lazy beast to undo my cast on for 170.
I'm slipping the first stitch for a cleaner edge.
I realize I have a bunch of Lion Brand Wool-Ease yarn that I got for random scarves, handwarmers and baby blankets. I have sometimes whole balls of yarn. So this will probably be more color blocked Wool-Ease, but I'm SO excited to have something move this yarn out of my stash and make something practical with. There are more babies and couches to warm this fall/winter. I sense this will be the first of "Wonders" to come.
